We spent a delightful few hours here visiting the Temple and the stunning Zen gardens. There is a bamboo trail which takes you to a tea house where you can sample matcha tea which is all paid as part of your entrance ticket. Not at all crowded which made it an even more pleasurable experience.,

Came here during a shopping trip to Kamakura with an old friend. The ticket gets you a free cup of traditional matcha in a tidy traditional building in the bamboo forest.

The grounds of the temple are just beautiful... Had a wonderful morning here, early, and at peace... And its bamboo grove was the reason for my journey to Kamakura, and worth it completely. Loved this place and day.

A small but beautiful temple in Kamakura. The bamboo grove in the back is lovely. For an additional fee, you can enjoy matcha and sugar sweets while facing the bamboo forest.

It's a relatively small temple but the bamboo path is really pretty. The only thing I did not like was the admission fee (which was why it only had 3 stars). I paid 900 yen for the admission and also the green tea inside. The experience was nice, but the green tea and the tiny Japanese snacks did not worth the $600 yen extra. I know it's not a lot of money but I felt that they were taking advantages of tourists and overcharging them.

Beautiful temple and shuttle this visit between the big Buddha and walking street will be perfect for a full day outing. We drove and lucky to get car park. Parking is limited and stroller friendly.

We really enjoyed our visit here. Beautiful surroundings and serene gardens. With so many temples in Kamakura, this one is surely not to be missed.

Another of Kamakura's many gems. Lovely place to stroll around. Easy to get to and wasn't crowded when I went. Well recommended.

Two times to Kamakura, two times to Hokokuji as well. Before we start with anything else in the small coastal city, we went here first. Since the temple is not that big, it’s better to avoid the crowd and peak time.
The tea house overlooking the bamboo and all the Japanese landscape around the temple were things that keep us coming back. We also love the quiet neighborhood.
